Bwog Says Grace
Written by Bwog Staff
By now, you’re probably on your way to Tucson or Trenton, Tuscaloosa or Taiwan. Bwog is also busy this Thanksgiving, eating turkey and kvetching. So if you don’t see so much activity on the site over the next few days, that’s why.
But before we set off, we bring you a list of things we are thankful for this year, culled from Bwog staffers near and far. So, God bless us! Every one! Unless you’re an atheist, in which case, we wish you a completely Godless Thanksgiving.
Nice Asian man at Pinnacle who doesn’t sleep.
Pinnacle coffee. (extra milk and sugar)
The two days a week when the EC soda machines actually have soda
Four options for baklava within eight blocks
Cheap multipurpose fabric worn by Xavier
Gelatinous fruit slices
Extra buttons on the inside of coats
when it rains, Butler scaffolding
children on campus, playing hide-and-seek
chit-chatter in Watson library
Miss Dee, who I meet while crossing the street in front of IAB, a tiny old woman wearing oversized sunglasses and tomato-red lipstick, who says, “Remember me.”
Kent’s big windows
That second button on the inside of your pants
Lerner sandwich guy
running into people in the library
Amtrak’s improbable continuing survival
Electric tea kettles.
Stealing from John Jay.
Getting the arc strider at Dodge (suck it, losers, suck it!).
Watching the sun rise while finishing a paper
Free leftovers at the desk in Lerner
Farmers market apples
Street fair $1 Thai food
Crazy security guards who just laugh at you when they realize you aren’t sober
Suitemates who you can shamelessly ask to hand you toilet paper when your stall is out
network printers that work
the barnard tunnel system
a prompt express train
wireless wireless wireless
john jay soft-serve
suitemates that sing jon bon jovi in a falsetto every morning at 6:00
the distant shore of new jersey
